Selected Accomplishments 

Charissa Powell and Ashley Stark presented at the First Year Experience Conference in Atlanta, "Working Together: Orienting students to campus resources the fun way" by highlighting the Hale Monopoly and Week of Welcome events in the K-State Libraries. 

Kim Bugbee and Stephanie Kiersey authored a proposal to create book displays on a bookshelf near Hale Library Help. The proposal was approved and the first book display was installed in early February to support the Break your News Bubble series of lectures.

Several Academic Services librarians are working with the McNair Scholars as mentors. The McNairs scholars are paired up with librarians in their disciplines. This is organized by Jason Coleman and Melia Fritch.
